One day I will wake to the sound of my kids laughing and playing. Not screaming and crying.
One day I will pull out their clothes for the day and there will not be a fight about which pants, dress, shirt, underwear, or socks are chosen.
One day they will not care which cup, plate, or silverware is placed before them or what food is on their plate.
One day they will sit through a breakfast with smiles and thanks even though we are eating oatmeal for the second time in one week.
One day I will not have to repeat myself every five seconds with commands to "stop fighting," "sit down and do your school work," and "stop screaming."
One day they will thank me.
Today is NOT that day.
